Old Leake is a village in Lincolnshire with its church, Saint Mary’s, being a Grade I listed building. Parts of the church date back to Norman times with additions made at later periods. There was once a lighthouse in the village and in the surrounding countryside you can find marsh samphire and sea lavender on the sea marshes. Marsh samphire used to be called glasswort or saltwort and it has been used for centuries in traditional medicine systems. Scientists of today have found that it is rich in iodine and is full of phytochemicals that protect the liver, heart and cellular DNA. It contains vitamins A, C, D and some of the B-complex ones, as well as the minerals iron, calcium and magnesium phosphorus, calcium, silica, zinc and manganese. It’s highly nutritious, and in the past sailors would take it on long voyages in their attempts to combat scurvy.
Have you had a whiplash injury in Old Leake?
You might have gone for a walk to the marshes around Old Leake looking for marsh samphire, and perhaps a sheep rushed at you from behind (they are rather partial to marsh samphire) and knocked you down. You could have then got a whiplash injury near Old Leake and needed medical treatment. Unfortunately for this type of accident in which you got a whiplash injury near Old Leake, you would not be able to claim personal injury compensation, as the sheep are allowed to graze on the marshes. You could get a whiplash injury in Old Leake in accidents other that road traffic ones, and an impact in which your head was jolted rapidly can cause a whiplash injury wherever you are.
In order to be eligible to make a personal injury compensation claim, however, you must be able to prove without a doubt, that you were not responsible for the accident in which you were injured. You also need to demonstrate that another person was to blame for it.
How long do I have to make my claim?
Different accidents and their resulting injuries have different time limits, although usually if your accident happened in the UK you have three years in which to file a personal injury compensation claim.
